Mailscanner seems to be doing a very nice job scanning for viruses and spam. The administration here at Oak Ridge Schools is very pleased, and the rumors of MS Exchange servers have died down. Thankyou Julian et. al.
However, I am still having concerns about this strange NOQUEUE error sendmail puts in the mail.log every time MailScanner executes, no matter how many messages in the batch. Here is a sample log entry, please let me know if you have any advice.
